    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! February

    I'm an Envie Addict! Hopefully, there are more of you out there! What? You're a newb? What's an Envie you say? If you don't already know, Envies are altered envelopes. They can be drawn on, painted on, upcycled, collage and mix media up! Sky's the limit. Getting personal mail is nice, but getting a mini traveling museum is the best! We also allow postcards!
    So here's what I propose, let's get a good sized group going for a monthly swap. It would be a nice way to get our fix of envies on a regular basis. Let's share our ideas, links to inspiration, and get to know each other as artist.

    How the NEW sign up works:

    First, I will post a new thread like normal. For the first week I will be accepting players. Players have the 1st thru 7th of the month to come to the thread and say, "I wanna play." Once you join, there is no withdrawing.

    Next, I will make up a partner's list and post it on the 8th or the 9th of the month. Once I have the player's list up, I will send everyone my usual monthly update via PM.

    My suggested mail out date would be the 15th, but for the most part your Envie needs to be in the hands of your partner by the last day of the month. If anything is late, there is a little forgiveness if you are communicating with your partner.

    In the past, we've had a lot of peeps that flaked on their trade. Itrader points will now play a big part in who plays in E.A.U. If you had a wonderful experience, fabulous! Leave positive points. If you had a hiccup, but your not too bent outta shape about it, leave a neutral point. If you had a total "flaker" and your experience was horrible...well then you might want to think about a negative point. (Consider yourself warned.)

    How will the points help us? I figure it this way. If you had a neutral point as a result of playing in EAU, you will be given a second chance, but a second one in a row will be considered a negative point. If you've had a negative point within 3 months no matter where you were playing, you cannot participate.


    On a lighter note, we celebrate birthdays! When you sign up and it happens to be your birthday month say, "I wanna play and I'm celebrating a birthday!" Other player's just might send ya some happy mail. ...just be sure to leave a YouRock point to those that RAK you.
    *Birthday addresses can be obtained through Kwailin777.

    Naked! Is how we send our Envies...as is. However, there has been times that mail has gone missing. If you feel that your Envie might find the same fate, you can send it, within a plain envelope. But! ... your art has to be dressed up with faux postage and addresses.

    Stuff, your Envie's with something sturdy like cereal boxes or junk mail. Send it out, but don't post a pic at AFA until you hear that your partner has received it. Save the surprise for them. Once, you get word that they have it, share it all over the place. We're nosey! We wanna see too!

    Size Rules: Your Envie has to be a minimum of 3 5/8 X 6 1/2 inches. (Small Business Envelope) ...and up...

    Celebrating a February birthday! NightOwl_too

    This month we have our annual Valentine Postcard swap as a side gig again. So when you sign up specify if you are playing only for Envie's...or only for the group Valentine swap...or for both. Remember, if you play in the Valentine postcard swap...you have to make a postcard for each player in the group. Over the past years...the group has been on average bet 12-16 people.

    Howdy Mel! Please count me in for the envie trade. I'm still thinking on the Valentines Swap... Inspiration is a tricky thing for me to catch. It doesn't come to me willingly, I hate to say, so let me brood on it for a while. If I decide to do it, I'll let you know in the next couple days.

    Hi Mel,

    I'm ready to play this month. Envie for sure. Maybe Valentines postcards. I'm in the midst of clearing stuff from the house studios and everything's pretty much a disaster around here.

    I guess I'm in for envies only. I may mail a few Valentine's of my own, but I don't have the time to do a ton of them.

    Put me down for the valentine swap. Can you put your valentine postcard in an envelope to mail? Heck, it took TWO months for my November postcard to reach Holland! The second version took a week in an envelope.

    I just say postcards because I thought it would be easier on peeps...but you can totally do a card in an envelope...or get your postcard in and envelope. All variations are acceptable
